                          About me

I was born in 1989 and in my 26 years have acheived quite a bit, some useful others not so much but its all apart of learning.

 

I lived in Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire until we relocated to Cumbria in 1997. I attended Cockermouth School where i was selected to be Deputy Head Boy in my final year. From there I went on to Aberystwyth University to study Drama. Graduating in 2010 from Aberystwyth I then followed in my families footsteps (literally) to pursue a career as a footwear agent.

As well as drama I am also a very keen sportsman and have enjoyed playing school, university and club 1st XV level rugby, 2nd's and mid week cricket, school and club football and many other disciplines of sport that can be played in parks! As well as playing I have been involved in Junior rugby, coaching under 10 and under 12 squads. I hold a level 1 coaching and referees certificate.

From a young age I always wanted to be an actor. One of my first performances was as Captain Scott in year 2 at Ashfield Park School, Ross-On-Wye. From this day forward I got the stage bug. Over the years I have taken on many different roles, but for me playing Shakespeare is by far my favourite. I have been fortunate enough to take leads in school productions of Richard III and A Midsummer Nights Dream as well as University productions of Pericles and Macbeth playing the eponymus leads in each. As well as Shakespeare I also love Pantomime and last year took on the role as Buttons in one of Wales' best theatre companies. I have just finished a production of Oliver Goldsmith's "She Stoops to Conquer". Which after a break of a year and a half was both brilliant and daunting!

Since moving to Chester in 2013, I focused more time on the business and put some of my hobbies and passions to one side, which worked out well for the company growing rapidly. Now in 2016 I have been able to reintroduce some of hobbies into my lifestyle. Joining Christleton RUFC for the start of 2015/16 season and recently returning to the stage to play Gaston in 'Beauty and the Beast".

With 2018 now upon us. I have one mission to make the most of it.
